Dear Maxime,

Thank you very much for considering my contribution and for all your
work on supporting sunxi-based hardware; I appreciate it.

Thank you for referring me to the Developer's Certificate of Origin, but
I had already read it before submitting (I had to do so in order to know
what I was saying by "Signed-off-by:") and I do certify what it says.

Looking through recent entries in the commit log of the mainline kernel,
I see several patches from authors such as:

H.J. Lu <>
B K Karthik <>
JC Kuo <>
EJ Hsu <>
LH Lin <>
KP Singh <>
Karthik B S <>
Shreyas NC <>
Vandana BN <>

so I believe names of this form are in fact acceptable, even if the
style might seem a little old-fashioned to some.

I would like to add that I have met many people with names such as C.J.,
A A, TC, MG, etc. That is what everybody calls them and it would be
natural for them to sign themselves that way. Some of them might want to
contribute to Linux some day, and I think it would be a great shame and
a loss to all of us if they were discouraged from doing so by reading
our conversation in the archives and concluding that any contribution
from them, however small, would be summarily refused simply because of
their name. Please could you ensure that does not happen?

Thank you again for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,
B.R. Oake.
